BCHL NEWS

JULY 3, 2019

The BCHL has announced the re-launch of their signature Showcase event by introducing the 2019 BCHL Showcase Festival presented by Bauer from Oct. 2 to 5. The league has introduced several changes to the event with the goal of increasing its profile going forward.

These changes include:

  • The creation of a Festival event to celebrate the official puck-drop to the hockey season in B.C. The event will now be called the BCHL Showcase Festival presented by Bauer.
  • The addition of a second venue as Penticton will host the league's Interior teams for NCAA and NHL scouts while Chilliwack takes its traditional role hosting the Lower Mainland and Island BCHL teams.
  • A BC Hockey Festival in Penticton, which will include other levels of hockey in B.C. outside of Junior A as well as several fan interaction areas to celebrate our great game.
  • A partnership with BC Hockey who will work with the league to increase the reach of the event, including the participation of minor hockey programs from across the province.
  • The Showcase schedule will begin at Prospera Centre in Chilliwack with games on Oct. 2 and 3 and will shift venues for the weekend action at South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton on Oct. 4 and 5.

BC Hockey, the governing body of amateur hockey in British Columbia and the Yukon, will also be a key partner for the event.

JULY 4, 2019

The BC Hockey League announced today it will debut a new league event on the 2019-20 schedule - the LNG Canada BCHL Road Show. This event will see two BCHL teams come to a neutral site arena in British Columbia for a weekend of hockey and community activities.

This year's LNG Canada BCHL Road Show will feature the defending Fred Page Cup Champion Prince George Spruce Kings and their Mainland Division rivals the Langley Rivermen playing a pair of games in the community of Kitimat. The games will be held Saturday Feb. 15 and Sunday Feb. 16, 2020 at Tamitik Arena.

As part of the Road Show event on Friday Feb. 14, the BCHL, in conjunction with the Canucks Alumni, will also run a Youth Hockey Clinic for the community that will involve on-ice activities, as well as an autograph session with BCHL and Canucks Alumni players.

The BCHL and LNG Canada have also announced an official agreement for the 2019-20 season as LNG Canada will become one of the league's Founding Partners, LNG Canada will also present the Volunteer of the Month Award, which we will award to a team or league volunteer that demonstrates dedication to their team, the league or the sport.

Along with the Vancouver Canucks Alumni, the BCHL and LNG Canada will select 10 BCHL and minor hockey players throughout the season and donate a $2,500 Scholarship Award to a Canadian post-secondary institution they will attend, as a part of the BC Hockey League Canucks Alumni Scholarship Program.s Centre, Penticton

OCTOBER 10, 2019

The BCHL has announced that its Board of Governors has approved the sale of the Coquitlam Express to local businessman Fayaz Manji.

Manji will serve as the team's Governor and the team has announced that Ron Veit will serve as Alternate Governor and special advisor to ownership.

Manji has also appointed Dave McLellan as President of Hockey Operations, Mark Pettie as Vice President and Alannah Kedra as Manager of Business Operations.

Rule Changes

The BCHL is continuing to align with the NHL by changing the rules for faceoffs following a penalty or an icing call. The attacking team will now have the choice of what side of the ice they want to take the draw in the offensive zone.

The idea behind the change is to give the attacking team another strategic advantage in the offensive zone. The BCHL is the first and only Junior A league in Canada to adopt this rule so far.
